Q: My primary doctor told me I need to see a specialist. What do I need to do?
 A: Call your primary doctor’s office again and request that they fax the referral to us as at 284-1053

Q: How much will a colonoscopy cost?
 A: It depends on which doctor is doing the colonoscopy, and if they also order an endoscopy at the same time. It usually runs $300 - $500. If you are having a biopsy sample taken, then expect a pathology bill to come later.

Q: Why am I receiving this bill after I paid at that time of service?
 A: Although you did pay at the time of service for your treatment, it is still possible that you may receive a bill after the fact. Reasons for this range from the doctor running a test on you while in the office and only collecting payment for the actual visit, pathology services rendered after a surgery, or the needs of a surgery changing while the operation is under way. Please be advised that once Access to Healthcare Network is notified of these charges, you will have 10 business days to pay the bill.

Q: Why am I paying more than $5 per lab test?
 A: Most blood tests done through  Medical Discount Program are discounted. However, it is rare that a physician will order a single blood test. Typically, they will want a blood panel that has a series of tests examining a similar system, such as various thyroid tests or tests related to your metabolism. When these tests are bundled together, they are called blood panels and may range from two tests to many tests. You will be responsible to pay for each test, and you will need to know what to pay at the time you arrive at the lab for the blood draw. As a rule of thumb, a healthy individual getting routine lab work will generally have to pay $100-$140 for the most commonly requested labs.

Q: How can I add on a child or family member (a dependent)?
 A: Please contact your care coordinator for more information. You may only add people that are truly dependents and you will be required to pay the difference between your current membership and one that covers the number of people that will be enrolled.
